Python Python Basics (2015) Logic in Python Conditional Value

ELSE statement

On this challenge, I am asked the following: ====Challenge Task 2 of 2

OK, one more. Add an else to your if. In the else, set admitted to False.====

So I added the else statement, following by admitted = False and the answer turns out to be incorrect. I don't see what is wrong with that answer.

conditions.py
admitted = None
if age >= 13:
    admitted = True
    else:
        admitted = False

The indentation of an "else" must always line up with the corresponding "if" .
